I’m a sucker for a great female vocalist. And when I find one that reminds me of Joni Mitchell, it’s a huge bonus. Of course, my trust for the judgement of Secretly Canadian records being tossed into that mix make Little Scream a must listen. With a beautiful voice and an impressive list of friends and contributors, Little Scream already has the resume of an artist to look out for.
Her debut album, Golden, is due out in April from Secretly Canadian, and I think this first song might make you fall for her like I have.
The album was co-produced with Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre), The Golden Record features Little Scream on guitar, vocals, violin, and keyboard. In typical Montreal fashion, it showcases a cast of local talent including Richard Parry, Mike Fuerstack (Snailhouse), Becky Foon (Silver Mt. Zion), Patty McGee (Stars), and Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre). The National s Aaron Dessner also contributed on “The Heron and the Fox”.
Trust any of those folks?
